Why must i buy my free Welcome Back games?

4 replies 29 views Edited Feb 13, 2012

I downloaded infamous as one of my free ps3 games in the welcome back free game giveaway.  It worked fine after i bought it for a 6 months or so but now it is saying i have to buy it at full price to play it. The other free ps3 game i purchased works just fine, so why is infamous different? Need to know whats up so i can finish finding all the blast shards!!!

When you say "it is now saying I have to buy it at full price'" what do you mean exactly, are you geting some error message, what happens when you load up the game?

That probably should not have happened, but it isn't necessarily a problem.  The way that you renew the license is to download the game again from the Playstation Store.  The Playstation Store will detect that the game is already installed during the activation phase, and just renew the license. The game won't actually be downloaded again, unless you delete it.  As long as the game is still in your Downloads List in the Playstation Store, you haven't lost it.
